Overview:

In 2016, the Foundation will award up to six full-time research fellowships to advanced graduate students conducting research on the Hudson River system.

  • A fellowship awarded to a doctoral student will include a stipend consistent with the policy of the student’s graduate institution, in an amount of up to $15,000 for one year, and an incidentals research budget of up to $1,000.
  • A fellowship awarded to a master's level student will include a stipend consistent with the policy of the student’s graduate institution, of up to $11,000 for one year, and an incidentals research budget of up to $1,000. 

The award is conditional upon a full tuition waiver or reimbursement by the University. The student's home university will be expected to be the primary source of support for materials and expenses required to do the thesis research and will also be expected to cover any indirect costs associated with the project. In special cases, applicants can apply for a 15-month fellowship in order to extend the proposed project through an additional summer.
